After the good comments in Patch today on Northborough's beauty, or lack thereof, I went out with my camera and took a few shots — what I call "uglification photos." One shows what a driver leaving the lot near Rocky's sees, another looks in the opposite direction to show the new site which will dump traffic into lines of traffic, another was taken near Sovereign Bank, and there is one from Watson Park, where garbage is everywhere -- and has been much of the winter. One can only assume that all the terrible weather has kept the area from being cleaned up.....
What I don't understand is why there seems to be absolutely no enforcement of signage regulations. Often, it is difficult to see out of driveways. There is only so much we can expect from a scar like Route 20, but what is so obvious is a total lack of imagination, concern for aesthetics and, sadly, enforcement. Anybody in charge?
As many of you know, I have published many photos of the real beauty one can find in Northborough. But pictures such as the ones I share here drive me almost nuts. We can do better!
If you have any photos you would like to add just send them to me and I will post, with or without attribution...your choice. I think this is one of those subjects where many folks can pitch in.
